Pumpkin Tahini Blondies Recipe

As if we needed another excuse to use pumpkin in our baking, I'm coming at you with a crowd favorite. One of those recipes that I wasn't sure would work, but I got double thumbs up from my picky family. That's how you know it's good!

So what are we making? Well, we're taking a few of my favorite things and mashing them all together into on EPIC bar. We've got pumpkin, we've got tahini, and we've got blondies. All wrapped into one delicious treat!

These pumpkin tahini blondies are soft, chewy, full of flavor, not too sweet and super simple to make. They're also gluten-free, flourless and they don't use any oil or refined sugar!

Ingredients for Pumpkin Tahini Blondies

I created this recipe based on my flourless peanut butter chocolate chip bars, using the same methodology, but changing up the ingredients. Here's what you'll find inside these chewy tahini blondies:

  • Tahini: this is the base of our bars and gives them a unique flavor! If you don't like tahini (or can't eat sesame), you could replace that with almond or cashew butter.
  • Pumpkin: because what would pumpkin tahini blondies be without our pumpkin!!
  • Coconut Sugar: my granulated sweetener of choice – it adds a kind of caramel-like flavor, without being too sweet.
  • Eggs: this recipe does rely on the eggs for that light and fluffy cake-like texture. I haven't tried this vegan, but I think it might work as long as you add some coconut flour and are okay with them being pretty gooey.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice: hands down the best spice blend that ever existed and is a must for any pumpkin-flavored dessert!
  • Pecans: I always like to have something crunchy with my baked goods. These are optional but quite delicious in my opinion!

And then we're also adding some baking soda, and sea salt to finish everything off!

Best Flourless Blondies Ever

How to Make Flourless Blondies

What if I told you these blondies are easy as 1, 2, 3? Because they are. Easy peasy!

  1. Mix your batter using just one bowl
  2. Pour the batter into the baking sheet
  3. Bake the bars

And that's it! The hardest part is waiting for them to cool so you can slice them up. Now this is my kind of baking!!

Chewy Tahini Blondies with Pumpkin

The Perfect Chewy Tahini Blondies Recipe

These pumpkin tahini blondies are perfect. They're chewy, they're light and they're kind of cakey at the same time. They have a spring to them which reminds me of cake, but also a gooiness that is more like a blondie/brownie.

Best of all they're healthy. They're packed with protein and healthy fats, they are fairly low carb, fairly low sugar and still totally delicious! One bar is just 138 calories with 3g of protein and just 3g of sugar. Beats the other pumpkin bars you might find at your bakery that's for sure!

And that's pretty much it, my friends! I can't wait to see you recreate these amazing bars on your own. When you make them, be sure to snap a pic and share it with me on Instagram by tagging @simplyquinoa ❤️ happy baking!

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the tahini, pumpkin, coconut sugar, eggs, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and stir well to create a smooth, runny batter. Pour the batter into the baking pan and sprinkle with chopped pecans.
  • Bake the bars for about 20 - 22 minutes, until the top is firm and lightly golden. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

  1. What should the inside be like after it’s baked? Mine came out quite fluffy then caved in a little. The inside is still very moist. It tastes delicious! But should it bake longer if it’s not sry inside? Thank you!

    • It sounds like yours were cooked long enough! These bars are chewy and cakey but also have some gooiness to them that is more like a blondie or brownie. I hope you enjoyed them! 🙂

  2. Just made these today – yummy and different. My first time using coconut sugar. I watch my carbs but lately find I’ve developed an intolerance to a lot of white sugar replacements I’d been baking with. Also, I grew up eating halvah, made mainly of sesame seeds, so tasting the tahini gives me great memories of that. Thanks for posting this recipe back when you did!

  3. I used flaxseed eggs instead of regular and I just checked on it it’s very jiggly ????????????‍♀️???? I’m gonna give it a little more time and hope they will come out ok

    • I don’t think this will work vegan!! The recipe really relies on the eggs for the structure 🙂 But let me know if it did turn out! xx

  4. I’m confused. The ingredients and the method are a little out of kilter. The method mentions “cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg”. Were they replaced by the pumpkin pie slice somewhere in the recipe’s preparation? And the “topping” we need to prepare – or is that the sprinkling of walnuts?

  5. Ohhh these sound delicious. Definitely gonna try this tomorrow. No egg for me though, would you sub flax egg + coconut flour or only coconut flour? How much of it should I use? TIA!
